Experts are predicting Australian property prices will rise this year… some by 10 per cent or even more.

Thanks to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have experienced historically low interest rates and a shortage of homes for sale, with stimulus packages from governments and banks keeping many people in the game.

A lot of buyers are ready to make their move, so how do you buy that dream home?

Even when prices rise, there are always good deals out there somewhere. You just have to know where to look.

Australia is full of different property markets and while one city or town is overheated, another may be more buyer friendly.

Once you’ve chosen where to buy, contact local real estate agents. Get on their databases, let them know what you’re looking for and that you’re serious about buying.

Some sellers may want to make a deal without going through the anxiety of an auction day. So make a good offer and help them help you.
